So, what is micrócrystalline cellulose?

Micrócrystalline cellulose is a commonly used food ingredient that is derived from wood pulp. It is a finely powdered substance that is often added to processed foods as a thickener or stabilizer. Micrócrystalline cellulose is unique in that it is insoluble in water and can withstand high temperatures, making it a popular ingredient in baked goods, dairy products, and other processed foods. Additionally, it is a source of dietary fiber and can be used as a low-calorie bulking agent. Despite being a processed ingredient, micrócrystalline cellulose is generally considered safe for consumption and is approved for use by regulatory bodies around the world.
